Vancouver artist Germaine Koh contributes to the housing discourse through her exploration of small-scale dwelling as social sculpture in her solo exhibition Home Made Home. An advocate of creative space design, accessibility, sustainability and self-sufficiency, Koh’s compact structures probe the complex housing issues relevant to the Lower Mainland. Home Made Home will include several of Koh’s structures - a portable, convertible telephone booth, a service kiosk, and a prototype for essential living services. Her newest construction, Home Made Home: Lululiving, is a 160 square foot micro-dwelling built on a flatbed trailer that will be located outdoors near the Richmond Art Gallery. This structure demonstrates progressive building technologies and ecological efficiencies of small-scale living, and prompts analogies to worker’s housing, floating homes, barges, and shipping containers common to Richmond and Vancouver. Opening Reception will be held on Saturday June 16, at 7:00 pm, Symposium will take place from 2:00-6:00 pm.
